California Tapestry Artist Offering Workshops in Massachusetts

Tricia Goldberg will be teaching 2 workshops in Massachusetts this summer.

JUNE 21-23, 2014, Snow Farm, Williamsburg, MA

Tapestry: From Image to Loom. 
From the beginning of a design inspiration to the final woven tapestry, you will be guided in choosing colors, patterns, and techniques. Students will weave with fine wool yarns on a small portable loom and learn tapestry techniques such as hatchings, hachures, and eccentric or non-horizontal weaving. Students with previous tapestry or other weaving experience will learn about using Aubusson bobbins, weaving from the back, creating perfect circles, and the potential for advanced color blending, among other things. Beginners will be delighted by their success in producing their first small tapestry. All levels welcome.
